  • Timeline

    1843

    Born to Robert and Isabelle Thornton in Philadelphia.  She is the second of three children born to the couple.  Her father was one of the younger sons of Ishmael Thornton and brother to John Caleb Thornton (Shade's father).

    1858

    Her family moves to San Francisco.  On the way west, they visit John Caleb and his family.

    1863

    Marries George Carlton, a young and upcoming lawyer.  The marriage is relatively happy, even though she is unsure if she really loves her husband.

    1864

    George Carlton is killed in a riding accident and leaves Sarah a small inheritance.  With the help and advice of friends, Sarah invests the money in real estate and other businesses.  The result is a modest income to support herself and live comfortably.

    1865 - 1875

    Sarah continues to live in San Francisco and at some point reverts back to her maiden name by adding it to her surname, as she feels that being label as a widow is cumbersome (however, she still uses her married name when necessary).  She also starts writing articles for eastern magazines and newspapers about life in San Francisco as a way to earn extra income.

    Popular and socially active, she has rejected a number of proposals and doesn't see the point in marrying as she is self-sufficient.

    September 1875

    After finding out about a prominent San Francisco family's secret, she is given the choice to leave San Francisco or be financially and socially ruined.  It is also implied that her family would be affected or in danger if she chooses to remain.

    August 1876

    After living for a while at Lost Lake Ranch, she moves to Kalispell to pursue her writing career and gets a job with the Kalispell Union
